From Bali: Private 3-Day Gili Islands Tour with Snorkeling

1. From Bali: Private 3-Day Gili Islands Tour with Snorkeling

In between Bali and Lombok, 3 idyllic islands can be found: Gili Trawangan, Gili Meno and Gili Air. These little coral islands have a real laid-back tropical island feel and make perfectly placed hideouts from the hustle and bustle of the mainland. With no traffic and nothing but fresh ocean breeze, this 3-day 2-night tour takes you to see two of these islands for an excursion full of relaxation, and special moments to remember for a lifetime. Your first day starts with a 7:00 AM pick-up from your hotel in Bali, which will take you to the Patagonia Express, a speedboat that will arrive at Gili Trawangan in just a few hours’ time. On the way, catch breathtaking views of Mount Agung and the deep blue sea. Once on the island, spend the day relaxing at a beautiful tropical island resort – lounge by the pool, dive in the sea or hop on a bicycle to explore the coastline. Don’t miss the sunset at one of the beach clubs – it’s a true spectacle of nature you don’t want to miss out on! Your second day features a private snorkeling tour on Gili Trawangan’s quieter but equally beautiful sister island, Gili Air. The 3-hour snorkeling tour takes you to see several amazing spots, beautiful coral reefs and colorful marine life. You’ll also get to swim with giant sea turtles, a magical experience! Spend the rest of the day as you like at another tropical resort – sipping cocktails, swimming, sunbathing – before another magnificent island sunset kicks in. If you’re an early bird, start day 3 early to catch the awe-inspiring sunrise of Gili Air. Otherwise, snoozing in bed to the sound of the sea is a lovely way to spend the first hours of your last morning on the Gili Islands. Enjoy one more swim in the turquoise sea, sit down for breakfast and say goodbye to these gorgeous islands. The Patagonia Express boat will bring you back to the mainland of Bali where you will be transported to your hotel by shuttle bus.

From Lombok: Private Gili Islands Trip w. Glass-Bottom Boat

2. From Lombok: Private Gili Islands Trip w. Glass-Bottom Boat

Spend the day exploring the Gili Islands' breathtaking beauty, snorkeling in the clear waters, chilling at the beach, and watching marine life swim by through a glass-bottomed boat on this fun-filled full-day tour from Lombok. Discover what makes Gili Air, Meno, and Trawangan each unique. Get picked up from your accommodation early in the morning and travel to the Teluk Kodek Harbor, where you board a glass-bottom boat so that you can see the fish as they swim about in the waters below. The first stop is Gili Air. Don snorkeling equipment and dive into the clear waters of the island. If lucky, you might spot colorful fish, coral, maybe even a lurking turtle. Head to Gili Meno next and visit a turtle sanctuary before diving underwater to see the famous underwater statues called “The Nest”. Make sure to bring a waterproof phone case or waterproof camera to capture some photos of the unique art installation by sculptor Jason DeCaires Taylor. Have lunch at Gili Trawangan, and spend a few hours chilling by the shores or diving back in for some more Gili snorkeling and other water activities. Then head back to the harbor and return to Lombok to make your last stop of the tour. One of the best photo-op spots in the area, Malimbu Hill is a viewpoint that boasts scenic views of the sea and the shoreline. Snap a few photos to remember the trip by before returning to your accommodation.

It was a great experience!

The tour was really very well organized. We were picked up at our hotel in Ubud and the driver, despite being in a difficult place, was on time. The crossing to Gili T was an experience and once we arrived we were nicely met at the harbor and brought to our hotel, where we turned out to have a fantastic beach house. On day 2 the captain also picked us up on time and the snorkeling tour was absolutely great! Also on Gili Air we had a very cool house. This tour is really recommended!

It was just fantastic!

We would book this trip again and again, the communication was very easy via WhatsApp. Everything is booked in advance and we were informed in good time. The hotel resorts were awesome, we were taken there and back with speed boats. From one island to the other islands, we had a private boat, which made the snorkeling trip with us at the same time. It was perfect all round. Thank you very much.

Make sure you have the get your guide app and stay in contact with the tour guides. I feel like they all knew what. Was happening but I didn’t...a “sit back and enjoy the ride” experience! All in all though, absolutely amazing trip, personalized, and relaxing!

Excellently organized
